Many times, people ask how they can help with our reindeer. It is out of those requests that we have created a way to accept donations. Our purpose is simple, we share and educate our community about reindeer. This creates so many magical moments during the Christmas holiday, memories that last a lifetime.
Our display season is short and reindeer care, feeding and comfort is a daily requirement. Those costs include feed, so the reindeer grow magnificent antlers and maintain their beautiful coat. Our wellness program is first a natural approach. We use essential oils for their physical and emotional needs. We have a veterinarian on call to support the reindeer health requirements. The reindeer are part of our family.
We are humbled by all the kindness we have experience with our reindeer. We appreciate your generosity.
The Phillips Family and our Reindeer too!

In the fall, it’s velvet shedding time for the reindeer. Throughout the summer, their antlers are growing. The developing bone is covered in a thick velvet skin. The skin protecting the growing antlers carries blood vessels out to the growing tips. When the antlers are fully grown, the velvet is shed and the solid bone underneath is revealed.
With the cooler weather, we have been working with the reindeer. Now is the time to start handling, walking and sleigh training.
